 Automated Property Set Data Labels

Automated Property Set Data Labels

2/8/2021

 

Joe Hedrick, a Technical Specialist at IMAGINiT, delivers the second of a three part video series on a creative use of Property Set Data implemenation in Civil 3D.
This second video focuses how to employ Property Set Definitions in Civil 3D Label Styles.
From the IMAGINiT YouTube Channel.

Comments

You will only see the Property Set tab in the Text Component Editor (TCE) for Label Styles for Civil 3D Features with Property Sets that reference them in the drawing.

 

 Automated Civil 3D Property Set Data Definitions

Automated Civil 3D Property Set Data Definitions

2/5/2021

 

Joe Hedrick, a Technical Specialist at IMAGINiT, delivers the first of a three part video series on a creative use of Property Set Data implemenation in Civil 3D.
This initial video focuses how to define a Property Set Definition with a Formula based calculation and simply apply that to entities.
From the IMAGINiT YouTube Channel.

Comments

Joe delivers some solid advanced Property Set creation and assignment instruction on the way to solving an interesting challenge in Civil 3D.
There is a small bit of Civil 3D API VBSCRIPT code involved which is explained.
You might want to employ a Civil 3D Structure ObjectID and not the AutoCAD drawing specific Handle, but maybe I'm missing something.

These days we might also consider a Dynamo for Civil 3D solution to test the Structures differently and then update the Property Set value(s) via a Dynamo script.
That is not so instant a solution, but is less Civil 3D release specific and perhaps easier to generalize to other and/or more detailed purposes.
The power of the Property Set vehicle is the most important transportable and adaptive part to get.

 

 Expression Driven Cut and Fill Labels

Expression Driven Cut and Fill Labels

1/15/2021

 

Kyle Groves, a Technical Specialist at ATG, delivers a walkthrough of how to create Cut/Fill Labels for a Volume Surfaces in Civil 3D.
From the ATG YouTube Channel.

Comments

Kyle demos a classic and basic Civil 3D Cut and Fill Label Style that is modified with Label Style Expressions.
Yes. It is also possible to hide the chaff created in this example.
This requires a Set of Expressions that work together instead of a pair and the thoughtful use of the Text Component Editor (TCE) component properties.
Hint - We can hide negative values.
